Boat tours for the 2021 season will start May 15th, 2021!*

Some of the most amazing settings, historical sites and preserved natural wild-lands are accessible by foot on several of the Apostle Islands. We go out with a minimum of 4 people, maximum 6 people. We match groups together to make the minimum required; see below for further details and small group pricing*. On these tours we boat directly to the island of interest for the designated hike and then allow plenty of time to explore the island. Don’t forget lunch, snacks and beverages to ensure a great time!

Typical morning departure is 9am. We will plan a pick up time around 5pm. Your captain can pick you up and drop you off on Madeline Island or in Bayfield for your tour.   

Sand Island- Lighthouse, Caves, Historic Remnants and Beaches

4-mile out and back trail, spend the day exploring the island!  $130 per person

Description: Easy. This hike begins at the campground dock and then starts a boardwalk trail, which eventually turns to dirt but it is all an easy stroll hike to the light-house grounds. In a few places along the trail there are remnants of a distant past when the island was a booming small farm and fishing community in the early part of the 1900’s. Bonus from the hiking trail there is an excellent view of the sea caves on Sand Island.  There are also 2 beautiful beaches to enjoy!

Private Tour Pricing:  For those uncomfortable sharing a boat with another group, we offer private tour rates: 1-3 people – $520 total; 4 people – $620 total; 5-6 people – regular per person price.

Stockton Island – Sandy Beaches, Hiking Trails and Exceptional Wetlands

Miles of hiking trails and sandy beaches!  $120 per person

Get away and enjoy Stockton Island for the day! Stockton Island offers something for everyone in your group; beautiful sand beaches, nice hiking trails and amazing natural wetlands! A flat-ish hike that will take you to the singing sands beach on Julian Bay, through the woods, or around the lagoon on the island. Since Stockton was originally 2 separate islands and that then merged together long ago, there are some amazing flora that you can’t find on any of the other Apostle Islands, along with rolling hills of moss! 

Private Tour Pricing:  For those uncomfortable sharing a boat with another group, we offer private tour rates: 1-3 people – $480 total; 4 people – $580 total; 5-6 people – regular per person price.

 *Minimum Group Numbers/Private Tour Pricing

We go out with a minimum of four people per boat, maximum of six people. We pair groups together in order to meet the minimum requirements. Only two traveling groups permitted per boat; this will allow for adequate spacing in the boat for social distancing. Therefore, we have made small group pricing for those uncomfortable to have others on the boats with them.
